Medication & Allergies

What if they need to take medication while at school?


If your child requires further medication upon returning to school you can either come to school to administer it to your child yourself or complete an Administration of Medication Consent Form for prescription medicines.


Please note that there are strict guidelines provided by the Warwickshire School Health and Well-being Service about having medication in school.


School is able to administer prescribed medication.

If your child does have to have prescribed medication whilst at school we can do this if you have completed the form to give consent. However, it is much less disruptive for your child and for school if medication can be given at home if at all possible.


School is not able to administer non-prescribed medication of any description.

If your child needs medication of this type during the school day you will need to make alternative arrangements for this to be done.


What if my child has allergies?


Please let us know about any allergies as soon as you are aware. If your child brings a packed lunch to school, please ensure it does not include any nuts (including Nutella or Peanut Butter etc) as we have children with severe allergies. We really appreciate your help with this. Thank you.
